THE SON-OF-A-GUN
Sponsored by the George Lucas Family Foundation

After playing several roles in Edwin S. Porter’s “The Great Train Robbery” in 1903, Gilbert M. Anderson became one of the most popular stars of early cinema and is best remembered for his on-screen persona Broncho Billy, which he portrayed in hundreds of Western shorts. In addition to THE SON-OF-A-GUN, we’ll see a great selection of some of Anderson’s finest shorts.
